The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Lacking areas

    I increase most all of my exercises in weight each week. There are maybe 2 or 3 though that I have particular difficulty with. Granted, I have only been working out about 1 month. Are there some exercises that are easier for you than others? I seem to increase my deadlift by a lot each week but my french press has stayed the same the last 3 weeks.

    look at what muscles are used for each of the exercises you listed

    the ones for deadlifts are larger vs. triceps and maybe a little chest of french press

    just keep eating and lifting hard...after only 1 month it's still too soon to be worrying about this

    If you ever get plateau'd, change you rep scheme. It usually helps.

    Yeah your right, a little early in the game to worry about this stuff. I think though that I must be kinda weak in my triceps, biceps, shoulders. But I do good in legs, back, chest.

    Sorry for the newb question but what type of rep scheme would I change to? I currently do mostly 2x6-8 reps.
